Blessed in their families. Blessed with great friends. Zak and Phebe’s wedding is one of the most fun weddings I have ever witnessed. Six bridesmaids. Six groomsmen. Tons of fun.
In several of the weddings I’ve photographed I seem to end up taking a convoluted, geographically mystifying route of how I get to be the photographer. This is another such wedding. I met the Kemmer’s when I lived in Washington D.C. Before they moved to North Dakota I did a series of family portraits for them. Zak and Phebe were dating at the time so I actually met the bride and groom years before the wedding. When I moved to Montana I hoped that I might one day get to visit, but I had no immediate plans. When Teri (mother of the groom) got in touch with me I was thrilled with this chance to see dear friends and photograph their wedding. Little did I know I was not only going to get to see old friends, I was going to get to make some wonderful new ones.
